This bundle includes three Christmas-themed works, including two full novels and a beloved short story.
A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens
Ebenezer Scrooge, known to all for being generally unpleasant—even towards his own family—has no regard for Christmas or its many traditions. He'd rather spend Christmas Day working than to fall behind on his business. And god forbid he let his employees have the day off!
On Christmas Eve, however, Scrooge is visited by the ghost of Marley, his former business partner. Because of Scrooge's indifference to his fellow man, Marley warns him of the consequences that await him in the afterlife. In addition, Marley suggests that the three other ghosts that will visit him that night will give him the chance to redeem himself.
What follows remains one of the most timeless and beloved tales of heartbreak, sorrow, and redemption. A Christmas Carol is a heartfelt reminder to remember the good in us all, to understand that giving is better than receiving, and the importance of caring for our fellow man—especially those closest to us.
The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus by L. Frank Baum
Baum’s storied career as a fantasy writer for children culminated with The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, but his opus on the mythos of Santa Claus deserves no less scrutiny.
The Gift of the Magi by O. Henry
This timeless short story tells of Jim and Della, a young and impoverished married couple. Unbeknownst to each other, they have been saving what little money they have in order to purchase the most perfect Christmas gift for each other.
The Gift of the Magi is a poignant vignette about the holiday season, and a gentle reminder that the best gift one can give is their own love.
